Reliance Communications subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) has deployed its Cumulous Network, which will boost connectivity in the seven Indian Capital cities across the Indian sub-continent.
Bill Barney, Co-CEO, Reliance Communications and Chairman & CEO, GCX, said: “The new Cumulous Network will complement our digital backbone as we complete deployment of our Cloud infrastructure across India.”
The network will also provide connectivity between the international gateways in Chennai and Mumbai, with Barney adding: “Chennai and Mumbai are both powerhouse cities and gateways for the major tech and financial institutions doing business across the Indian sub-continent.”
Based on current 100G technology, GCX will be able to deliver significant capacity across this important Indian sub-continent route with the ability to further upgrade in the future in alignment with technological advancements and market demand. The new network will interconnect with RCOM’s established network of data centres, connected by India's largest terrestrial fibre network which connects seamlessly into GCX’s global subsea infrastructure.
“The new Cumulous Network will be a vital backbone to meet soaring demands of new applications such as the company’s new initiatives in the Internet of Things, the deployment of Cloud infrastructure as well as the continued expansion of enterprise franchise in India,” said Wilfred Kwan, Chief Operation Officer, Reliance Communications (Enterprise) and GCX.
This announcement comes after the company announced a massive deleveraging of its assets through a wireless merger with Aircel, a tower divestment with Brookfield and most recently the sale of its Yipes business in North America.
